Budgeting apps review - data privacy

Choice’s review of budgeting apps doesn’t discuss data privacy and data re-use. Do these companies share information with credit rating companies or advertisers?

Pocketbook use the data for advertising in conjunction with third parties - see their privacy policy at https://getpocketbook.com/privacy-policy

Do all of the reviewed budgeting apps do this or is there one that simply offers a budgeting service to the user for a fee?

It would be good to see a comparison of the privacy terms & conditions of different apps when Choice updates this review.

Hi @eucalyptus,

Thanks for the suggestion, we’ll see if we can include more privacy information for the next report.
